Ravindra Jadeja scripted history in the match against KKR with his brilliant performance as a bowler and as a fielder in Chennai. The star cricketer helped CSK to return to winning ways with his sensational spell with the ball and a couple of crucial catches. The CSK player achieved a unique triplet which was never done before by a player in the IPL.

The 35-year-old became the first-ever player to achieve the triplet of scoring 1000 or more runs, taking 100 or more wickets, and claiming 100 or more catches. It is indeed a great achievement which proves his worth as one of the finest all-rounders the sport has ever seen. His performance in the match turned the game in CSK's favor.

Despite losing the wicket of Phil Salt early in the innings, KKR scored 56 runs for the loss of one wicket at the end of the powerplay. On a slow pitch, Jadeja weaved his magic in the middle overs. He first dismissed a dangerous batter like Sunil Narine which put KKR on backfoot. The orthodox left-arm spinner followed it up by dismissing impressive Angkrish Raghuvanshi.

Ravindra Jadeja the MVP against KKR

He further dismissed Venkatesh Iyer and claimed the third wicket of the night. In his spell of four overs, the star spinner conceded just 18 runs and claimed three wickets. An economy of 4.50 was decisive in CSK restricting KKR to just 137 runs on the board. Even as a fielder, he claimed two important catches and impacted the end result.

Jadeja claimed the catches of Phil Salt and Shreyas Iyer to complete 100 catches in the IPL. CSK chased the total with 14 balls to spare and seven wickets in hand. The rockstar was rightfully named the player of the match for his performance as a bowler and as a fielder. It was a brilliant example of what a cricketer like Jadeja can do and impact the game.
